Online students take classes offered asynchronously and synchronously. Asynchronous classes provide you with the ability to complete coursework independent of a specific class time, while synchronous online classes often meet online one day a week for 2.5 hours. This is an entirely online degree. At no point will you have to be in Iowa City during the duration of this program.

This degree option consists of twelve classes from our curriculum.
